5:02 am
in emmettsburg and jessup coming in at 65. the hour-by hour forecast brings us to 75 degrees as we head into lunchtime and we will be dry. let's get a check now of the abc 2 time saver traffic with lauren cook. good morning. >>reporter: good morning, lynette. we are following breaking news in anne arundel county. there's a two-alarm fire right now in lothiam on bee street. one person has been taken to the hospital with smoke inhalation. we, of course, will bring you the very latest as it does become available. now, as lynette mentioned, we are dealing with a lot of rain, you will want to slow down, be extra careful as you head out. fog is going to be another issue, so do expect reduced visibility. as we check in and take a live look here at the northwest corner of 695 at old court road, everything moving right along, no delays as you travel down towards 95. and as we approach other drive times, the rest of the beltway, great shape up to towson. traveling the outer loop, you are looking at an 11-minute
5:03 am
ride. 95 in white marsh going to be nice and clear as well, four minutes to travel from white marsh boulevard down to 695. that is a look at your abc 2 time saver traffic. megan, over to you. a big night for the nfl with the professional referees making their return, much to the delight of so many fans at m and t bank stadium and it was an even bigger night for the ravens who, by the way, came away with a win, and that is, of course, going to improve the 3-1 they have had so far this season. so charley crowson live this morning downtown right outside of the bank. charley, i know you're smiling p this this morning. >>reporter: big win for the ravens. who wouldn't be smiling about this, megan. but this is national news. this was a big deal last night. and who would ever imagine football fans giving the referees an ovation when they come out on the field, well, that was the case last night here at m and t bank stadium when the ravens were hosting the winless cleveland browns. after a lengthy lockout that caused the referees to not be on the field for three games, well, they finally returned
5:04 am
last night after the league announced shortly after midnight wednesday a deal had been reached for the referees to return to work immediately. and by immediately, that meant thursday night football when the ravens were playing host to those browns. and if you think about that three-game span when the replacement referees were in place, a lot of things were going on, games were going extremely longer than normal, about 3 1/2, sometimes four hours long to be exact. you had bill belichick grabbing a referee here at m and t bank stadium, this was a few nights ago when the patriots were playing the ravens. it all culminated monday night with the seahawks/packers that gave seattle the win over green bay. so as you would likely expect as the game rolled on last night, coaches and players both glad to see the referees back on the field. >> welcome back to the officials. good to have you back. these guys are really good. these guys -- the communication was good, didn't agree with every call. >>reporter: of course you didn't. >> want to know what happened on the last one, gave us the
5:05 am
extra play. hadn't seen that yet, i've heard about it. but they were excellent. >> the biggest thing is i think the game probably went a little bit smoother and, you know, a little bit more seamless and things like that, moved it along a little bit, calls were made and everything just kind of went a little bit smoother. >>reporter: by the way, there was a football game that was played last night. joe flacco who you heard right there threw for about 356 yards. he was sharp on the night, had a touchdown and a pick. an twan bolden, he had more than 100 yards receiving and torre smith carrying off of that emotional win sunday night, of course, his brother died over the weekend. he kept it going last night. he had a touchdown catch and receiving for about 97 yards. now, the ravens, they don't play again for about a week, but this weekend you can expect similar returns as those rest return -- refs return to stadiums all across the national football league. we're live downtown, charley crowson, abc 2 news.
5:06 am
>> charley, we'll check in with in just a bit. five minutes after 5:00 right now. visitation will be held today for anthony anderson. he's the man from east baltimore who died after a confrontation with baltimore city police last week. anderson had been walking home last week in east baltimore when he came into contact with several police officers. in the first initial police report that was given after his death, it said that he died because he was trying to hide drugs that he was ingesting. however, now police admit it's not true and people who say they saw that confrontation, they tell a much different story. >> he put his arms to the side and come straight up and slammed them on his neck, collar bone-like. he sit that man up. [ indiscernable ] >> well now police will only say the circumstances of this case remain under investigation. the visitation, by the way, it begins today at 10:00 a.m. at march funeral home and after

5:27 am
those extended hours. we're certainly hoping that a lot of you do. we saw the lines for the iphone, they were so long. maybe you're one of those people who stood in one of those long lines to be the first to get the device. imagine what would happen if you dropped the box of iphone 5s right in those lines. >>reporter: how long have you guys been waiting? 2:00 in the afternoon? for you? >> oh, my gosh.
